When attempting to install plugins from Novell Downloads (nu.novell.com), plugin install never progresses or completes.
/var/opt/novell/tomcat6/logs/catalina.out file shows the following error:

Download the certificate specified in the catalina.out file from https://www.digicert.com/digicert-root-certificates.htm
DigiCert Global Root CA
DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA
Copy the downloaded certificate to the OES server. For this example, the certificate was saved as: DigiCertHighAssuranceEVRootCA.crt
Install the certificate into the cacerts file used by iManager using the following command:
keytool -import -alias DigiCert -file /tmp/DigiCertHighAssuranceEVRootCA.crt -keystore /var/opt/novell/tomcat6/conf/cacerts
When prompted: Trust this certificate? [no]: Type: yes then press enter
When prompted: Enter keystore password: Type: changeit
Restart iManager: rcnovell-tomcat6 restart
The root CA for the DigiCert certificate used by nu.novell.com has not been imported into the certificate store file </var/opt/novell/tomcat6/conf/cacerts> on OES.
Importing the certificate will allow java to trust the certificate used by nu.novell.com and download the npms for installation.
Note: Adding the DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA certificate will cause all certificates issued by this CA to be trusted.
